Too Much To do In Cordoba, Argentina

Even if you had a month to explore Cordoba in Argentina, it still would not be enough time to see all the wonderful sights that this city has to offer.   It has everything you could possibly want to see like museums, churches, shopping centers, parks, plazas, buildings, theatres and much more.   There are even UNESCO World Heritage sites in Cordoba and many of the buildings that you will see date back to the Jesuit time in the area in the 1600s and 1700s.

If you want to start with churches, there are a handful or two that you can see.  You can go to the cathedral Iglesia de Santa Catalina de Siena, Iglesia de San Francisco, Iglesia Sagrado Corazon and the Iglesia María Auxiliadora.  You can also go to the oldest church in Argentina which is the Compañía de Jesús.  You will notice that the Iglesia Sagrado Corazón has a beautiful neo gothic architecture.
